Area E Volunteer of the Year recognized
Wendy Davis has been officially recognized as the 2019 Electoral Area E Volunteer of the Year.
“Wendy is well known for her many years of involvement in the development and distribution of the Tri Village Buzz newsletter in Wasa, Ta Ta Creek and Skookumchuck,” said Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Electoral Area E Director Jane Walter. “She was the editor for eight years, and during that time volunteered over 60 hours each month to organize and produce the newsletter, coordinate contributors and reach out to the community.”
Under her leadership, the Buzz grew and continues to be an important tool for keeping the community informed and connected.
Davis is also well known for her contributions to the community.
“She has contributed in countless ways through her involvement in the Wasa Lions and the Wasa Country Breakfast. She has such a giving heart and it is an honour to name her as our 2019 Area E Volunteer of the Year,” added Walter.
Davis was formally recognized and presented with a gift of appreciation at the Area E Town Hall Meeting Monday night.
In addition to the Volunteer of the Year celebration, attendees to the Town Hall Meeting heard presentations from Director Walter and RDEK staff on the Five-Year Financial Plan, Solid Waste Management Plan Review, new Recycle BC Depot at the Kimberley Transfer Station and FireSmart basics.
The RDEK’s Volunteer of the Year celebrations and Town Hall Meetings will continue across the remaining Electoral Areas over the next several weeks.
